Bats are fascinating nocturnal creatures whom many enjoy to watch from afar, if at all. When the evening starts to set in, we have enjoyed watching the bats and flying foxes fly over our house on their way to find some food. Currently, they are enjoying eating the mulberries off our tree, leaving none for us. To learn more about these amazing animals, and other nocturnal animals, here is a list of some great free printables that you could use in your homeschool.
